The Number 12 Looks Like You is an oddly named band with an equally hard to describe sound. Part post hardcore part Grindcore, The Number 12 Looks Like You makes a sound that is by no means easy to digest but is undeniably original. Their 2005 release Nuclear. Sad. Nuclear, is their crowing achievement. It is a perfect audio snapshot of the band at their peek. Sadly, I feel the bands later releases didn’t live up to the water mark they set with Nuclear.Sad.Nuclear. Stand out tracks like “The Devil’s Dick Disaster” and “like a cat” illustrate the insanity and constant motion of modern life. The vocals of these songs aren’t so much sung as they are thrown at the listener like a scud missile that has reached terminal velocity. Unfortunately, in late 2010 the band released a press statement saying that they had disbanded. However, if you’re looking for something a little outside the norm look into The Number 12 Looks Like You.
